Sliding Block Puzzles

by Peter Grabarchuk

Color tiles with nine letters in box...
Spelling all -- NEE-WOL-LAH...
Line-by-line from the top to the down...
What strange words can you see!..

Hear you whisperous sounds of them?..
Hallowe'en "trick or treat" challenge comes!..
You accept it and get all in order...
So that spelling it all -- HAL-LOW-EEN...

Be aware, that the Pumpkin not moving at all...
And all letters must go one-by-one...
Only so as the Goal you commands...
And just so your success is saluted...

Meanwhile -- Trick or Treat?..

Each tile can slide to an adjacent free space. To move a tile simply click it.

The Halloween Slides puzzle uses the same 3x4 grid (with nine 1x1 blocks in a 3x3 pattern, and a 1x2 "shuttle" block) which was used in other sliding block puzzles by Serhiy Grabarchuk --
The Correct Order Puzzle, The Correct Order Puzzle - R or The Super Fan Puzzle; and by Peter Grabarchuk -- The Christmas Slide Puzzle or Slide Fir.

Also, a similar "shuttle" piece was used in another puzzles by Serhiy Grabarchuk --
Return to the Future and Card Suits Suite - 2.

Use of this "shuttle" piece which can move just by only one cell back and forth makes all above mentioned puzzles especially tricky.
